Eating Disorder?: You might have a serious eating disorder. Does your Dr know about your anorexia, laxatives and vomiting? Treatment is really important if you have this problem. In the appointment you might obtain an antidepressant that is administered in a non-oral manner. Please take it seriously - it can be very dangerous not to treat an ED. Best!
